Sad Day

It is with sadness today that I report the death of Sara Burke daughter of my long time potter friends Gord Burke and Jan Phelan. She was a skiier at the top of her game and an Olympic Gold hopeful for Canada. Sara died doing what she loved. That still doesn't make it easier to swallow. Not much I want to say today. Be of courage Gord, Jan and family.

So sorry to hear of Sara's death. It made the news here. Best to Gordy and Jan. In one culture I am familiar with, death is merely a door to a new life. When it is the life of a young and accomplished athlete, it's a real challenge to take that perspective.
